face tracking

All I want to know is if it can do enough face detection to replicate this super creepy robot spider.

Nothing to do with Pixy -- I just thought I'd mention the fact that I was drooling :-)

But Seriously -- WOW!!! This is incredible!!!

I know! I can imagine all kinds of uses for it, but frankly facial tracking is the one that I keep coming back to. Unfortunately they don't show any examples of that working.

@Caleb: ...facial tracking is the one that I keep coming back to. Unfortunately they don't show any examples of that working.

I think facial identification and tracking might be beyond this system but ... maybe if you used this system in conjunction with a Parallella -- and you used the Parallella to implement a neural network, then...

@Caleb: All I can say is "curse you red barron" ... I was tempted beyond my endurance and I've pledged to the Kickstarter project ... I opted for two sensors because I want to try experimenting with binocular vision...

Hi Caleb, note the following extract from the text:

(While it won't do facial recognition, its developers say that it should be able to do facial tracking in the near future.)

 

BTW, I'm drooling too

Copycat :-) At least we'll be able to recognise each other when we meet at a conference -- are you planning on attending DesignCon or Design West in 2014?

No not this year, I'm on the other side of the planet, and I promised my wife a holiday she would enjoy too this time :-).
